Reviews for A Wrinkle in Time
Lack of Magic
I'm coming into this review as a blank slate. I don't know anything about 'A Wrinkle in Time' novel. I haven't read the novel and I'm not sure I've heard of it. Zero emotional attachment. I wasn't even sure what to expect. Given all that, I didn't really enjoy the book.
The book starts off as any typical coming of age story. A misunderstood teen with more to offer then any of her peers realize. Then things start going off the tracks and this story becomes an interstellar adventure to save the world, maybe the entire universe. Nothing wrong with that, but the characters failed to connect with me.
The story is full of characters with all kinds of cute names and personalities that I am sure are meant to register. I got the feeling the novel gave more breath to the characters then the graphic adaption was able to muster. They seemed like the type of characters that could fill a kid's dreams, but the graphic novel couldn't deliver that wonder.
It didn't help that the main character came off a bit annoying. Especially towards the end. She kept complaining about the same thing over and over.
The art does its job well. The characters are easily recognizable and emotions are clear. There are some times when the figures become a little stiff or feel a little rushed. There are several artistic story telling devices that are used to portray space or emptiness. This is kind of cool, but I feel it's used a bit excessively. There are pages of 'nothing'.
The book was a herculean effort and I think fans of the original novel will appreciate this adaptation. However for me, the magic was not included.
